I have a PB Thunder Cat. Just p/u a modded engine (dynamite .32 new in box)by TLR off Ebay. Just wondering if any other's have used this engine and what equipment i should be using (header, pipe, prop). Any help would be great.

Not sure on the pipe and header. But I know the stock thunder cat likes a big prop. Mine mph best with a
M445 or pranther 225 with a stock pipe.

Thanks for the info. I'm actually running a prop from Grim Racer, not sure of the size but it gives the boat wicked holeshot out of the hole (no cavitation) and fairly decent speed for the stock motor (mid 30's i'm guessing). The new motor is supposed to make more rpm's and hp (so i'm told). Also told to be running a min of 50% nitro.

sanded her down, broke it on on home made dyno, got her in the water and some dick thinking we were playing bumper boats thought it would be funny to hit me wide open. split her from a butt hole to nose. PISSED! RON YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE! put electrical tape on it and finished the day but she's probably down for the season. not worth fixing. waiting for new hull to come in. pictures and maybe a quick video to follow.

thinking on flotation for the new hull. anyone ever try the spray insulation foam you can get from Home Depot or Lowes?? Everything ahead of the gas tank is sealed and empty. Would i benefit by adding a bit of weight by blowing some of this stuff into the front of the hull?

The only "modded" thing for the boat as it is, would be the motor i got from TLR and a custom cut prop from my hobby dealer. I've got some paint ideas in mind for the new hull but other than that....just looking for things to make it faster and better...

well here's a vid of it. the old hull's last run. you'll notice the electrical tape on either side of the hull. i used the tape to keep the boat in the water for the rest of the day after running with a guy "newer" to the hobby thinking it was fun to play bumper boats. amazingly, the tape worked quite well. new hull is sitting at home in the basement waiting for some creative genius. not sure of the new paint scheme yet or any other mod. something to ponder while rotting over the winter. maybe hunter orange??

Thanks bro. I love the T-Cat. It corners like bitch! It is running a bit slow but this was only the 2nd or 3rd of fuel and NOT full throttle. I'm itchin to get everything into the new hull but other shiat is taking priority right now. It will be a good winter project. and who knows, it may see water before the snow melts.

actually if you have photo bucket when you hoover over the pic you want to post it will have an (img code),, click on the (img code) and it copies automatically, then past it in your post.

when you paste it will look Something like this
[IMG}You must be logged in to see this link.{/IMG]

and when you post your reply it will look something like this(except with your pic)
